April in Brief

usaa-rampThere are good changes happening behind the scenes here.

After the recent redesign of the Aviation Weather Center website, I updated my Prog Charts Archive to include the mid-range prog charts.  Those are the 3 through 7-day forecast charts issued once daily.

In the Missed Approach Point Study Guide, I expanded some of the explanations and added others, which now include 12 different scenarios that instrument students are likely to encounter.

For a few weeks now, I have been working between my flights to add a new section to this website.  It isn’t ready yet, but it should be live sometime this summer.  Other projects offline have kept me away from blogging for a little bit.

In the meantime, it’s already 90 degrees here in Texas, and I am flying whenever possible.  I am still taking small steps toward airline qualification and learning new things at work every day.  More updates soon!

Welcome to my new website!  This project will focus on the topics and the professional changes that are more relevant to me today.

I have several goals and projects outlined for CaptainsLog.aero:

  • Articles from before today were moved here to this new website.
  • My prog. chart archive now resides here.
  • The new domain name is a better fit and easy to remember.
  • New articles will be aviation themed and posted to the front page at least monthly.
  • I will put more emphasis on professional networking and writing comments on aviation blogs.
  • My research fellowship will result in an online survey study, which will be available through another new website, to be announced in February.
  • I will add more personal articles about my experiences in flight training, university life, and career track progress.

You may bookmark and subscribe to this website for reminders to check back soon.  Thank you for reading!

New Weather Archive

Many of These

Starting today, I have a small new website that is automatically archiving all of the aviation prog charts.

Prog Charts Archive

The need for this arises from research pertaining to weather forecasts, and the fact that such an archive does not seem to exist anywhere else.

Runway incursions by category.

Research Preview

I am happy to present two term papers that I just finished writing at Eastern Michigan University:

Challenges Faced by Airline Pilots

and

Runway Incursions 2000–2010: Is Safety Improving?

These papers contain the results of a survey that I conducted as part of my research. Many hours of study were devoted to these assignments, and I am proud of the results!
